Wine: 3 stars Winery: 2 stars Ambiance: 2 starsJun 21, 2015

Though the winery is now closed for several years, I report back an opening of a 2008 Misty Ray Norton wine. Norton wines need to rest and mature in bottle for four or more years and I like reporting back to Catch Wine about these wines. We've heard Norton wines compared to Zins, Malbecs, etc., but this bottle matured into a beautiful west coast light Pinot Noir style taste. What a delightful surprise. Now back to the original May 2010 Norton Wine Review: After visiting Virginia vineyard farm settings that have been in the family for literally over 200 years, other winery acreage that have slowly developed over the last 15-to-20 years, and wine locations built recently with millions of speculative dollars it was fun finding a winery that measures how many pounds of grapes were accumulated from the number of vines rather than from how many acres (as little as one vine and as many as five) in his backyard. Welcome to Misty Ray Winery in Phillip Kreider’s Harrisonburg, VA suburban back yard. Here is a hobby gone wild from a man who grew up with grapes on his boyhood Ohio farm. Grapes have always been a part of his life, and though alcohol was not condoned in his youth, he learned to appreciate the production of quality wines during his life’s work and travels. At this home backyard setting, Phillip has been amazing to choose over twenty-five unique grape varieties for his desired extremely limited creations; as, Chardonel, Arkansas Sunbelt hybrids, and of course Norton grapes. Each wine offered has a different shining quartz-soil story to tell. Few Virginia vintners can produce a tasty Cabernet Sauvignon, but yet Phillip can. Don’t pass up his light yet complex flavored Norton wine that truly can stand up to most Nortons produced in Virginia. Since he gets an amazing 10-to-15 pounds of Norton grapes per vine (75 lbs total last year), you still have to be quick in being able to purchase this limited production wine. You get to hear at all other vineyards how their wines are produced in stainless steel or oak barrels, but here you get to taste wines produced in genuine American glass. Oh was the rhubarb wine fun.
